AUDITIONS

HOW TO AUDITION FOR OUR SUMMER TOUR (18 - 26 JULY 2020)

Auditioning for Street Orchestra Live is simple. We welcome applicants from across the UK who are 18+ years old and post-grade 8 standard. All orchestral instruments are eligible including alto saxophone but excluding tuba & harp. Our main auditions are done online as it gives everyone an equal opportunity to apply. If you’d much prefer to audition in person we’ll be holding an audition weekend in London on 4-5 April. We regret we cannot currently hold auditions in other locations due to limited resources.

For more information about playing with SOL please read our FAQ. Please note that travel, food and accommodation are provided, but there is no fee. SOL is a charity and all its players volunteer their time.

Please note you must be available for the whole of the rehearsal and tour period. For July 2020 this will be Saturday 18 July until Sunday 26 July inclusive

DEADLINE FOR ONLINE AUDITION SUBMISSIONS: SAT 4 APRIL 2020

DEADLINE TO APPLY TO AUDITION IN PERSON: SAT 28 MARCH 2020

To apply we request a copy of your CV and links to two videos for your audition (e.g. via YouTube, Vimeo, G Drive etc.). The deadline for applications is 5pm Saturday 4 April.
